What We Do

Finding the right tutor or teacher can be challenging. We work with you to understand your student’s needs to determine the best fit with our educators. After providing exceptional customer service, we connect you with an expert tutor to help with your private tutoring, music lessons, or art instruction needs. Our educators are experts in their fields of study and have years of tutoring and teaching experience. Our students receive some of the best personalized educational services in the area at a fraction of our competitor’s prices.

Our Philosophy

We believe that the most effective way to help students is by thoroughly understanding their needs and abilities and tailoring our services to meet them where they are. Our educators teach with kindness, patience, and positive motivation while using positive, fun energy to make learning more enjoyable.

Our Story

In 2021 Drew M. Hodis, academic tutor and music instructor, founded Hodis Learning & Music. With a passion for teaching and helping others, Hodis has served his hometown of South Pasadena for nearly a decade, starting as an individual tutor at South Pasadena High School. HLM has since grown to serve the greater Pasadena area including San Marino, Alhambra, Altadena, and San Gabriel. 

“Tutoring for me isn’t just about helping a student finish their homework. I see a lot of kids struggling with stress and self-esteem, I want to give them confidence and encouragement,” Hodis explains.

His drive to help students excel in the classroom and beyond is also what motivated him to get a PhD in Clinical Psychology, which he is in school for now at Adelphi University. With this experience, Hodis hopes to bring a holistic approach and understanding of psychology and motivation to better serve HLM students.
